Adding to these costs is hardware refreshes, which require huge expenses every 3-5 years to keep systems up to date. By running SAP on the cloud, you can solve both problems. Cloud computing provides on- demand resources, which allow you to provision only what you need, when you need it (and de-provision these resources when they're not needed). As a result, you pay only for the IT resources you use.
